OUR TWO RETREAT CENTERS
LA DOGANA MONTEMELINO
La Dogana has partnered with our next door neighbours, Montemelino Vineyards to allow more guests to experience the beauty of this unique region of Italy. With La Dogana and Montemelino being a stones throw away from one another and working in the same industries, a partnership was inevitable. With so much in common both locations bring you the same value and amenities to enjoy on your Italian getaway.
A family estate of the de Ferrari’s for generations, La Dogana’s 40 acres are actually a national landmark in Italy and a popular wedding venue. With the capacity to room over 80 guests, La Dogana has apartments each containing their own kitchen appliances, bathroom, bedrooms, and a beautiful view.
A 30 meter pool overlooks the Trasimeno lake and Tuscan hills to help you unwind and relax. Our restaurant, Antica Dogana will be preparing 4 course meals for you every night. Chef Stefano is sure to deliver one of the best experiences of the trip.
Montemelino is a small organic family farm since 1960. The farm is now run by Sabina and Pier who decided to leave the city life to carry on the family tradition and produce quality wines and oil that express the extraordinary terroir of Lake Trasimeno.
Just like La Dogana, each apartment comes with its own kitchen appliances, bathroom, bedrooms, and views. A pool also overlooks the vineyard with stunning views of the rolling hills and lake Trasimeno, exuberayting a classic Italian charm.DISCOVER MONTEMELINO
